Hudson Valley is home to many world-renown architectural & design marvels and architecture firm HUDSON DESIGN is keeping up with the tradition of creating structures that merge art and architecture with aesthetic acumen. They just unveiled their latest project in Putnam Valley: a modern, minimalist home designed for a picturesque lakefront setting on Lake Oscawana.
In line with authentic Hudson Valley Style, the home is designed in sync with nature and on the inside features open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling structural steel windows that create unobstructed panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
“Care was given to minimize the details, so the observer would be less aware of the home’s enclosure and more aware of their experience surrounded by lush woodlands. What details we did want to feature, we chose to do so with craftsmanship and authentic materials,” says James Copeland, Founder, Hudson Design.
A cantilevered deck, Garapa hardwood decking and ceiling finish, custom acrylic finish on the fireplace and low-maintenance and fade resistant Englert aluminum panels are just a few design highlights of this 3,000 square-foot home. Use of concrete, wood, steel, and glass as primary building materials proves Hudson Design's commitment to Sustainable Design practices that are not only good for the wellbeing of the home's residents but better for the environment at large. It also boasts a stormwater management system, which prevents direct runoff into the lake, among the eco-conscious features of the residence.
